MAGNIFICENT Carved CAMEO Antique Victorian Necklace BOOKCHAIN Gold Filled Engravings & Repousse c.1860's!


From our YEARS AFTER Shop is a SUPERB Antique Victorian Bookchain Cameo Necklace consisting of a Beautifully carved Carnelian Stone Cameo which Faces Left & Raised High with Intricately detailed Engravings and Front & Back Repousse Workmanship on the Bookchain Tassel Necklace circa 1860's! (See All Photos!)

This Gold Filled Victorian Antique Bookchain Necklace has Gorgeous Fine Quality Workmanship and is so elegantly classy! The Center Section is Rose Gold-filled with precise Tiny Jewelers Engravings and an applied Filigree & Ivy Leaf Design. This Ivy Design sets the stage for the harder-to-find left facing carved Cameo Woman (Likely depicting Queen Victoria)! This High Set carved Cameo has 13 Prongs holding it securely and tightly in place.

The Rose Gold Cameo Section has a Great Side Depth with pronounced Beading and Hinged corners that give a sleek Flexibility! The Top Left part is actually where the Clasp inserts into the Pendant so it's easy to put on and take off!

The Ornate Book Chain Part of this Sensational Necklace is Yellow Gold Filled with contrasting Rose Gold Filled Tassels. Each of the Wonderful Small Rectangles have a Repousse Center Design, similar to a Greek Key Pattern, on the hinged Bookchain Links. This Book Chain Necklace has a Nice Silky, Slinky Feel in it's entirety!

This Victorian Jewelry got it's name "Bookchain" because the squares are folded-over like Books. These Chains alone are very hard-to-find and this Cameo Necklace is a BOOK PIECE seen in "Old Jewelry by C. Jeanenne Bell".

Measurements for the length around neckline are 18" in length by approx. 3/16" in width. The Antique Cameo Drop with Tassles fall another 1-5/8" which hangs from the Bookchain giving it a total of 19-5/8" in length.

This Antique Victorian Cameo Necklace is in EXCELLENT Condition without any chips or cracks to the Cameo or missing parts which is really Incredible being that this Antique Jewellery is at least over 125 Years Old!

A Regal and Ornate Antique Victorian Cameo Bookchain Necklace to display with your Vintage and Antique Jewelry Collection and to wear with Pride!
